Philadelphia-based Nancy Glass Productions, the prodco behind Animal Planet’s Tanked (pictured) among other unscripted programs, has officially rebranded as Glass Entertainment Group.
The company is also entering into an exclusive development and production partnership with Sweatshop Media, run by Vem Miller. The company, with offices in Los Angeles and Toronto, produced Tattoo Rescue with Original Media for Spike and created and developed Car Lot Rescue for the same network.
Via the partnership, Miller, serving as head of creative and development for Sweatshop Media, will unite his slate with Glass Entertainment Group’s, with Miller and team working out of the Sweatshop offices as well as Glass’ HQ. The partners have a development deal with FYI underway as well as a true crime series currently being shopped. Both companies are repped by ICM Partners.
“Vem Miller and Sweatshop Media are a perfect addition to our group. He is a tremendous producer with a strong creative vision and unique point of view,” said Glass Entertainment Group founder Nancy Glass in a statement. “We are thrilled with this partnership. We know that it will be mutually beneficial and will allow us to attract even more talent to the company.”
Other recent deals undertaken by the prodco include a partnership with Jairus Cobb and Shannon Biggs to launch Argle Bargle Films and the formation of the joint venture production company Rearrange Media with former Stephen David Entertainment exec Randy Counsman.
